Bumped/considerably worn corners/spine ends, part of top right spine scraped/torn/missing, some cover soil, faded gilt, pencil scribble to front pastedown, front end paper excised, pencil scribble to top of first title page, previous owner's name elegantly written to top of first text pagesevere foxing throughout, pencil notation ("Pa won't let us go" -- damn that Pa, anyway!) to rear blank end paper.
